  • Model 2290 Brings Revenue To Pendley Farms

    Having spent upwards of 30 years in the world of logging and sawmilling, Leonard Pendley of Pendley Farms LLC in Morgantown, Kentucky is well acquainted with the residual material left behind from logging and clearing operations. He left the logging realm in 2000 to focus more on real estate, but knowing the added value gained from clean, attractive property eventually led Pendley to consider purchasing a wood chipper for his waste wood, trees, and treetops. He spent upwards of six months researching various companies and different models, looking at everything from cost to capability and efficiency in processing small and large diameter material. His extensive research culminated with Bandit Industries and the Model 2290 whole tree chipper, and Pendley couldn't be happier with the 2290's performance. "My Bandit is wonderful; it's doing a great job" said Pendley. "I buy/sell real estate, and whenever I cut the timber off, it looks nasty. I decided to buy a chipper where I can go in and chip up the treetops, dress it up and make it look like a forest."

Throughout these changes coal miners and their colleagues have continued to do what they do best: mine coal.

For some, this has been an easy exercise but for others this has been a difficult learning process.
